I love going to dunwich out of season – a small sleepy village famous for its birdwatching. its hard to believe that it was once the unofficial capital of east anglia and the main port for trading of wool timber and fish. there is apparently a 3 mile coastal walk to walberswick which is worth doing. the ship at dunwich looks like a popular place to have sunday lunch, but you must reserve. stop off at dunwich forest and take a picnic and enjoy the natural beauty.
we always end up at Homebase in Lowestoft – so pop to Kessingland beach for walk to take in the fresh sea air. it always reminds me of Dungeness with its pebble beach, wild flora and incredible light.
we have had the cottage nearly 3 years now, but we have explored the coastline on each of our short visits, and each time we are pleasantly surprised at how naturally beautiful it is. can’t wait for spring and hopefully warmer seas when maybe i shall attempt a swim in the sea too.
